Inflation Risk

Arises because of the variation in the value of cash flows from a security due to inflation, as measured in terms of purchasing power. It is also referred to as purchasing-power risk. For example, higher inflation levels erode the value of future cash flows for fixed-rate investments, while floating-rate investments will periodically adjust the value of the rate paid to reflect a higher or lower inflation rate expectation, thus reducing inflation risk.
